For Lena and Lennie Composed by Quincy Jones. Arranged by Mark Taylor. For Jazz Ensemble. Published by Cherry Lane Music Co Inc. (Catalog # 02501058, UPC: 884088156084)

Here is a wonderful medium swing ballad based on the version Quincy Jones wrote for Count Basie, and also recorded on Quincy's own album “Quintessence.” The saxes lead the way to start with, followed by lush, full ensemble writing throughout, plus a short trumpet solo. This very playable arrangement is a perfect “down” number for any contest or festival. (Cherry Lane Music)
